Daily Inspiration: Meet Brenzy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brenzy.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I grew up in Virginia in a really tight-knit family – the youngest of three with two older brothers. I’ve been surrounded by music for my entire life. From the time I was a toddler, my parents were in bands together and my oldest brother was in a couple of bands too. Practices and jam sessions were always held in our basement, and I would just sit on the floor to watch and listen. I eventually got my way onto a microphone and sang some “oohs” and “ahhs” for them, and then when I was 8, I sang on stage by myself for the first time at a church camp. I fell in love with it immediately. I began writing around 11 years old, and I was performing a few times a week by the time I was 14. I got into the industry when I was 15 and moved to Los Angeles that year. It was a rollercoaster trying to navigate my teen years while also trying to find myself as an artist, but I’m really proud of how strong I’ve stayed and the young woman that I’ve grown into.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. From the time I was 15 or 16, a lot of people tried to turn me into something that I’m not. I was put into a box when it came to how I looked, the music I made, how I dressed, etc. I stayed true to myself through those years and eventually got to show the world who I really am by the time I was 19, almost 20.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I make R&B/Pop music! I make music that feels true to who I am. I don’t aim to make music that’s trendy or “what’s working”, because I’m not good at hiding who I am. I’m most proud of my songs “brunch” and “Seven Days”. These songs pushed me creatively and helped me realize that I’m not boxed into one genre or sound, so I just got to be free while writing them. I think my authenticity sets me apart from others. I never want to come across as a product but as an artist and human being.

What’s next?
Releasing new music, definitely, and getting on stage! I also really want to start collaborating with other artists. There are a lot of really cool things in the works right now.
